Wildflower *

photo by eob2/lg

Near the gardens edge,

where the woodland

begins, amongst an

unruly bed of weeds,

there thrives a singular

wild blooming beauty,

bathed in morning dew,

she awaits her Beloved

sun, His warmth caresses

each petal, she turns

into this touch, her face

begins to glow in His

morning golden light.

Bloom Cycles (acrostic)*

Beyond my window, petunias

Languish in the midday sunshine

Opening with the morning light

Only a few fade by end of day

My eyes observe as they transition

*Note: my mother had an affinity for flowers, so it’s not far reaching that I do as well. Photo was taken by me of my flower box. Enjoy the musical sound of petunias.

*Note: The photo was taken by me, though we don’t get much snow in winter, on this day we did. Winter days can have many faces. When the sun shines, reflecting itself on snowy surfaces it sparkles with beauty. Giving us a sense of peace. Than there is the flip side which I address, an inner feeling of sadness (depression?). The weather like people has its mood swings. The music and video are well suited. I hope you watch it through to the end. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

“Come on guys, get in the car.

It’s been a long day, time

to go home.”

“Yes, it’s dinner time.”
